Build a Birthday.... Happy Birthday

I am in love with the new In Colors!!  I have to admit....  it always takes me a little while to warm up to the new In Colors, but once I start playing with them....  it's all over!!

That was certainly the case as I made this card!!

We start our card with a Cucumber Crush (one of the new In Colors) card base, then added a layer of Whisper White card stock.  We rounded the corners of both of these layers using our Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.

To make the cake, we started with the bottom layer first.  We stamped the cake pedestal (from the Build a Birthday Stamp Set) in Tip Top Taupe ink (another new In Color), then added strips of the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack to create the layers on our cake.  On the top, we stamped that cute banner (also from the Build a Birthday Stamp Set) in Cucumber Crush ink, and on the bottom, we stamped "birthday wishes"..

For a finishing touch, we added some cute little flowers (in Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Watermelon Wonder) using our Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and also placed a Pearl in the center of each flower.  What a fun card!!
